Beautiful and worth the price. From the top you can see that the Wallowa's are much more just than Wallowa Lake.

Great tram. We have been on others, but this one had to have the longest vertical we've experienced. Fortunately, the forest fire smoke had cleared and the views are awe inspiring. The couple mile trail loop at the top was just right for spending a...More
